A Car Accident & Then a High-Risk Pregnancy Kept Me Out of Work! please Help Us keep Our Home!

My Story:

I am a single mom of three kids. My youngest is my 1-year-old daughter, and my two oldest are my 10-year-old son and my 15-year-old daughter. My 1-year-old is the bossy one out of the crew, and she loves running the household. My son is heaven-sent and has the purest heart. He's always willing to lend anyone a hand. My oldest daughter is also such a blessing, and she's always doing such a good job of helping me to make sure her younger siblings are taken care of. Both of them look up to her so much, and I'm so proud of her. My kids are my life and the reason I continue to strive and work hard. I work full-time with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools and have been employed with them for the past 13 years.

The source of my family's hardship stems back to a car accident I had in 2017. The accident was extremely traumatic for me, and I have suffered with PTSD ever since then. I had an episode November 2019 which resulted in me being hospitalized for several days. My doctor took me out of work, and soon after that, I found out I was pregnant in December of 2019. Because of other medical conditions I suffer from, I was diagnosed as high-risk and continued to stay out of work. Initially, I received disability through my employer, but that ran out, and then I received disability through the state. Because the process for leave is different with the state, it took longer for me to be approved for assistance, and I fell behind on my rent as a result. Since then, I've returned to work, but I've been constantly struggling to get caught back up on my rent.

My family is in imminent danger of being evicted, and even though I'm working again, we don't have the means to catch back up on our rent on our own. I know that if we can get caught up again, I'll be able to manage all of our bills from there on out, but without help, I'm afraid that we'll lose our home. Thank you all in advance for this assistance and for the stability that it will give my family for the foreseeable future.
